In view of how well the “chatter” and advice has been developing over recent threads, I am inclined to think that sometimes subscribers posting comments are best left with control over the content, rather than an “Editor” interfering by making a fresh post on a different subject, which effectively wipes out the thread of a discussion that is developing beneath a previous post. A particular example is the current one, where really very important information on the situation with the Consulate (yes – thank you Jon!) will effectively be lost by me making a fresh post (nobody goes back to add to comments against previous posts). This same information could at some point in the future save somebody so much time and effort if it remained available
I am therefore investigating a Bulletin Board/Forum to run alongside the blog, which will preserve useful threads (there was another developed recently on gardening for instance) – which can be developed and remain available as a reference library for those seeking advice and up-to-date information.
Does anybody have any strong thoughts – I am leaving this post short to keep the conversation in the previous post accessible on the first page. Thanks in advance.
